COLUMBUS, NJ - It was a long way to come for roughly 80 percent of one-minutes's work, but the 70-mile journey was more than worth it for the Summit High School Girls 4x100m Relay Team of Jackie Kohaut, Emma Osborne, Claudia Piron and Icisys Sadler.

That because the quartet is making the return journey to the Hilltop City as State Champions, having created a golden moment by finishing first in the Meet of Champions (MOC) 4x100m race.

The triumph is the first Summit Girls Track and Field MOC win in almost four decades, with the last victory coming in 1981.

After, in order, Sadler, Piron and Kohaut ran the first three legs of the race, The Maroon and White had a slight advantage, which anchor-'Topper Osborne was able to hold onto as she crossed the finish line.

Summit's time of 47.07 was two-tenths of a second faster than runners up Delsea and .38 ahead of third-place finisher East Brunswick. The Hilltoppers time was more than a half-second quicker than their qualifying time at the Group 3 Championships, set a Union County record, and broke their own school record.

In other MOC action:

Dorian Jackson jumped a personal best 22' 3 1/2" to take 11th place in the Long Jump.

Chris Heckelman ran a 4:24:76 to take 17th spot in the 1600m.

The 4x400m Girls Relay Team of Osborne, Piron, Kohaut, and Sophie Piron ran a 3:54:76 for a 10th place finish, the time nearly four seconds faster than their qualifying mark.
